Terminator: Future Shock
The Terminator: Future Shock is a first-person shooter computer game released by
Bethesda Softworks in 1995.
The game depicts Judgment Day as happening in 1995, then the setting jumps
forward to Los Angeles in the year 2015. The gamer plays a human escaping
entrapment by Terminators. After escaping hostile enemy territory in the first
mission, the player meets with John Connor, the leader of the Resistance. From
that point on, one plays as a Resistance fighter. Skynet's uprising in 1990 has
left most of humanity dead, with control in Skynet's hands. All around is death
and decay, scattered with remnants of a past society shattered.
Future Shock is played in the first person perspective at all times. Each level
in the game requires the player to solve a number of objectives before
continuing to the next level, while fighting enemy robots with a wide variety of
guns and grenades. Another obstacle in each level is the harsh terrain, as many
areas contain too much radiation for the player character to remain alive. The
terrain is navigated in three ways, 'on foot', in a jeep with a mounted cannon,
or in an Aerial Hunter-Killer.
